PS3 games for 8 year old

My little brother's getting a PS3 for his birthday and I was wanting suggestions for what games I can get him. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a given, I know he'll love it. Any other games along those lines?
And any Move compatible ones worth getting?



lego clone wars is gooooooood

little big planet 2 is goooooooooooooood

god of war is a nice cute game. only kidding but you can't go wrong with little big planet 2 and if the ps3 is connected to the internet he will have unlimited levels to play.

Midnight club LA is excellent for just driving around LA, I got it for my nephew to play he loves driving all the cars and bikes, he doesnt do get involved in the races so no dialogue from any game characters, so no fear of bad language being heard. He can crash cars and bikes all day long. Great graphics and sound.
Little big planet 1 & 2 is also a must.

Get the games you like and just say you got the best games for him

Little Big Planet
Ratchet and Clank
Modnation Racers

I always enjoyed FIFA when I was 8, if he's a football fan I'd recommend. And if he's not too bothered about the players you could get an older one as they're very cheap. Like thesaint said Ratchet and Clank is great. I personally don't like Little Big Planet but most people seem to enjoy and it's definitely suitable for an eight year old. Perhaps he would like a lego title? Such as Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars or Lego Harry Potter. And there is a Spyro title or two on the PS3, aswell as games based on films such as Cars. Hope this helps


Look out for FreeRealms which is coming soon to PSN store, it's free to play and ideal for kids.
It's like an RPG but with mini games like kart racing and card games. It's out now in the US but not here yet.
